Tanglewood Case – Assignment #1 (Case 1) – Due Week 2
The goal of Part 1 is to help you learn more about the basic environmental concerns the Tanglewood Department Store chain is facing. This information will help you to understand how competition, strategy, and culture jointly form the effective development of a selection plan.
In this assignment, you will be concentrating on staffing quantity and staffing quality strategies for Tanglewood. To begin the assignment, refer to Exhibit 1.7 in the textbook. This Exhibit displays a series of strategic staffing decisions: nine pertaining to staffing levels and four pertaining to staffing quality. Donald Penchiala, the Director of Staffing Services, is interested in your professional opinion about each of these decisions as they pertain to Tanglewood.
Review the textbook material for the 13 decisions and the material you have read about Tanglewood. Then, consider each of the decisions and indicate which way you think Tanglewood should position itself along the continuum and why. For example, the first decision is to develop or acquire talent. Indicate whether you think it is better for Tanglewood to focus on acquiring talent internally or externally and explain why. Repeat this process for each of the 13 staffing levels and staffing quality dimensions.
